Megyn Kelly Drops F-Bomb over Fauci Dodging Subpoenas

'He sounds like he’s been invited to afternoon tea at one of our houses...'

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly appeared to go off script on a recent podcost episode of “The Megyn Kelly Show,” dropping an f-bomb while ranting about COVID Czar Anthony Fauci.

Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, this week announced that he would resign from his current position in December—a move that is widely considered his effort to pre-empt investigation from a Republican controlled Congress.

In a recent interview with CNN, he suggested that if he were summoned to testify in Congress via subpoena, he would exercise his personal discretion on whether to attend, the Daily Caller reported.

“I certainly would consider that,” he said.

“I believe oversight is a very important part of government structure, and I welcome it, and it can be productive,” he continued. “But what has happened up to now, is more of a character assassination than it is oversight.”

After being criticized for having flip-flopped regularly on his pandemic mandates and having covered up his own role in funding the research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology that likely caused the pandemic, Fauci has used prior appearances before Congress to spread misinformation and falsehoods, as well as to wage partisan attacks on his Republican critics.

Kelly lambasted Fauci for his presumption and belief that he could simply ignore the congressional summons if he wished.

“He sounds like he’s been invited to afternoon tea at one of our houses,” Kelly said.

“I will consider it. I’ll consider it,” she continued. “Only if it’s oversight, because what I experienced was personal attacks.”

Kelly then launched a full-fledged attack on the public health official.

“F*** you, Dr. Fauci!” she said. “You don’t get to say whether you go. You get a congressional subpoena, you show up, or you get the Steve Bannon treatment,” referring to Bannon’s refusal to obey to the Jan. 6 committee’s show-trial subpoena.

Bannon has since been convicted on two counts of contempt of Congress, and is set to face trial on Oct. 21.

Republicans, including two powerful Kentucky lawmakers—Rep. James Comer, the top-ranked GOP member of the House Oversight Committee, and Sen. Rand Paul, Fauci’s top Senate nemesis due to his background as a medical doctor—have announced their intention to investigate Fauci regardless of his retirement.
